I Shan't be Silent


Wordless Wednesday...for some perhaps, but not for me. Grey seems to be the color of the day, even the color of late...we haven't had much rain, so even though I protest, I shall be grateful. Looking out my window this morning, we have fog and grey again. Even at the height of day, we seem to be scarce of light and the days seem short. I do think I need to look into getting one of those lights to enhance ones' brain activity...one more thing to add to my list.


I have nothing at all to relay, but feel the need to reach out to others by way of this blog; put down my thoughts in hope that life goes on. I feel so isolated! I arise each morning and do the same thing each day...oh God, the drudgery of my existence on this bleak, January day is all but choking me! I want to DO something! I'm so sick of the nothing that I could simply scream!


I'm sorry if I sound depressing to others for that is not my intent, but if I don't portray how I feel, I really might implode or something...uuggghh. Since I have absolutely nothing better to do, and the dogs seem to be as completely bored as me, we'll be heading to the park again at noontime and going for a walk. I will park at the top of the hill since the park is closed to traffic, and walk for everything that I am worth. Quickly and with intent, looking straight ahead we will go, and God willing, I'll feel somewhat more at peace this afternoon, than this morning...this foggy, cold and grey midwinter's morning.


I will try to remember that life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and the responsibility to give something back by becoming more...


God help me...


I think that bears are some of the luckiest creatures on earth, for they simply sleep the winters away.

Winter can be very hard, particularly those dark grey days. It's almost February, so spring will be on the way soon - our birds are just starting to do a bit of singing here and there. And pretty soon, the horses will begin the process of shedding their coats.

You're right to spend some time moving and outside - that's the best medicine in my experience.

Sending good wishes and thoughts.

I'd rather have your grey dreary day than the walloping we're getting with snow storms rolling in one after the other. Just got home from the store and it's snowing again. Can't even go for a walk but I could go out and freeze my butt off and make a smiley faced snow man!

One thing that always works to cheer me up is to put on some tunes and turn the volume up. Go ahead and sing and dance like no one is watching.

I hear ya!

I have lots of sunshine but sometimes I feel that my life is going nowhere anyway. Spring will spring soon and hopefully the depression will lift too.

I think we all go thru the winter blues. I was about at my breaking point the first week of January, and then....the sun came out. It will head your way soon enough. Hang in there.

Thanks for the words of wisdom everyone - I really appreciate your comments, and they do help. I'm better today, and walking with the pooches is always therapeutic...as is writing.

something in the winds yesterday because even up and over here (Quebec, Canada) there were so many of us feeling the winter blahs. We are surrounded by white, not grey, but there is something about this cocoon called winter, the shorter days - I agree that we should all just wrap up and tuck in for a few months!

Hey, January is almost over! February is a short month and March is springtime! Hang in there, the worst is almost over.

You have an award over on my blog - no obligation to do anything about it unless you feel like it.
